Asia Pacific Consulting Market Forecast to Grow at 7% Through 2008

Industrial Manufacturing to Lead All Other Industry Segments in Region

PETERBOROUGH, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 27, 2006 -- The Asia Pacific is one of the fastest growing regions in consulting today, with revenues steadily increasing in most markets, according to a new report on the region from Kennedy Information, The Asia Pacific Consulting Marketplace: Key Data, Forecasts and Competitor Profiles.

"While there are many significant challenges," states analyst Damien Blenkinsopp, "the opportunities, both short and long term, are enormous."

Among the Asian consulting markets analyzed are ANZEA (Australia, New Zealand), ASEAN-5 (Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand), Mainland China, Greater China (Hong Kong, Taiwan), India, Japan, and South Korea, as well as the less developed markets of Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, Nepal, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.

Along with providing three-year growth forecasts for each market, The Asia Pacific Consulting Marketplace identifies regional and global opportunities for firms operating in the APAC market.

"How consulting firms choose to develop their Asia Pacific network and position themselves in this growing regional market will have important repercussions for the bottom lines and position of their businesses globally," says Kennedy Executive Vice President Brad Smith. "And as Asian businesses increase their foothold in the global economy, they will become more and more important to a consulting firm's worldwide portfolio." The report profiles 40 leading firms, including both global and local players.

The Asia Pacific Consulting Marketplace is an exclusive 290-page report, supported by 149 tables and charts.
